Luàna Bajrami grew up in Kosovo and made her acting debut in France at the age of ten. Inspired by her dual, Franco-Kosovar culture, she travels from one country to the other, following the rhythm of her projects and collaborations with other filmmakers. She made a name for herself in 2019 with roles in Sébastien Marnier's School’s Out and Céline Sciamma's Portrait of a Lady on Fire. A self-taught filmmaker, she wrote and shot her first feature film at the age of eighteen. The Hill where Lionesses Roar is about youth and highlights the little-known landscape of her homeland of Kosovo. The film had its premiere in the Directors' Fortnight at the Festival de Cannes in 2021. Phantom Youth is her second feature film.
